    Favorite All-time College Bball teams?!

    I was reminded recently in a conversation with a fellow college bball enthusiast of some of my favorite teams (not any particular school) to watch historically. While there were several, the teams I always had the most fond memories of watching was those (as they dubbed them) "Flyin Illini" teams of the late 80's. In particular my favorite player was Kenny Battle. Damn he was entertaining!Anybody else?

    I would upload a file of them dunking all over Iowa on youtube, but I don't know how to do that.

    The 2000 Cyclone Team obviously is the favorite. The 88-89 Illini are also a great one. I liked what George Mason did recently. The Valpo team with Bryce Drew was a nice one (sweet 16 I believe?).

    Add all our Cyclone teams from the 90s of course :).

    Michigan Fab Five...they were fun to watch. Unfortunately they messed it all up with $$$.

    Any cyclone team any year should be considered #1. This should I guess be for #2....

    The great UNLV teams of '90 and '91 were alot of fun to watch. I also liked the Fab Five until we found out about the $$$$.

    My all time fav's are any ISU team that went to the Dance.

    Yes, great picture. Not sure where I got that picture from, but I've posted it on here a couple times before, when the definition of swagger has come up in a thread.
